After much discussion, Carmen and I have decided to start an announcements thread that will run every Friday.
The thread will serve two purposes:
1. To call attention to events/films/conferences/etc that our readers may be interested in.
2. To highlight reader blogs and submissions, in a similar fashion to the Feministe Shameless Self-Promotion Sunday thread.
If you are a promoter/publicist/event coordinator, please send us information about your event (preferably with an event flyer) to firstname.lastname@example.org before noon on Thursdays. Please include “Announcements Thread – ____” in the subject line.
If you are a reader and would like to highlight specific blog posts you have written or events that you are attending, please feel free to leave a message in the comments section.
Please note: Racialicious reserves the right to refuse any promotions/delete any comments that we deem are not a good fit for this site or for our audience.
